Summary: I love the ZOOOMMM!!!!, I was at Metro Crater in AZ, Good great shots, T was able to it up and close in the Grand Canyon and see the Col rivers with easy, Fast easy change out of lenes, Get the Filters Huge help .
Summary: What comes before amateur photographer? Well whatever the answer, that's what I am! Don't know much about lenses really. All I know for sure is that this lens zooms in really good. I purchased this lens to capture my detailed eye makeup, and it captures my pics flawlessly. I highly recommend this lens. Plus I got it for a great price!
Summary: When I first purchased my Nikon j2 lens I loved it, but as I began going more places and taking more pictures I realized that the 10-30mm stock lens that comes with it has horrible zoom. I purchased this lens and my pictures have definitely been better.
Summary: I was a bit apprehensive in purchasing a used lens... This lens looks and works as brand new. A camera lens would usually be one thing you would never want to purchase used, unless you had it in your hand and actually used it first. I took the chance and have been very pleased with the results for my new Nikon J3.
Summary: This lens gets used more than my other two lenses (I also have the 10-30MM lens and the 10MM pancake lens). Once you are brave enough to get out of auto-focus mode and work the manual settings, some amazing photos can be taken. Great for taking pictures of kids sporting events and a very good lens for landscape photography. If you have the Nikon 1 system, this lens is a must-have. I put a picture in the gallery of bee I took who was flying over a poppy flower.
